Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews have joined colleagues from West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service at a large wildfire in the Lickey Hills area of Birmingham. L
A number of crews are at the incident and members of the public are urged to remain clear of the area. Temperatures near 38c and a breeze are making it difficult for fire crews to control the spread of the blaze.
A spokesperson for Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said:
“HWFRS and West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service crews are currently fighting a fire in the open in the area of Rose Hill in Rednal in the Lickey Hills.
“People are asked to stay away from the area – residents are asked to keep their doors and windows closed.”
